RL Grime Turns The Weeknd’s ‘The Hills’ Into A Trapped-Out Mountain
The Weeknd - The Hills (RL Grime Remix)

RL Grime uses wild, spiraling synths, clap-laden builds, and surprisingly smooth drops to expand The Weeknd’s Billboard-dominating hit single The Hills into a bombastic and soulful trap anthem. This one is aimed at dominating big room sets until whenever the breakout Toronto-based superstar wants to break his stranglehold over the pop zeitgeist.

There is no other word regarding official remixes being released for The Weeknd’s album which now has two singles–The Hills (#1) and Can’t Feel My Face (#3)–currently in the Top 10 of the singles chart, but the latest from The Grimy One certainly has our undivided attention. RL Grime has had a surge in popularity this year due to the release of his 2014 album VOID as well as a series of excellent pop/rap remixes. If wanting to hear RL Grime spin this track in a set, Vegas is your best bet as, alongside the Life Is Beautiful Festival from Sept. 25 through 27, he has club dates scheduled, too.

No sales information has been released regarding this remix, but do feel free to stream it above.
